Because I didn't have enough settings I've converted from my tabletop RPGs into novel series (and vice versa), I thought I'd share another one of my creations in THE UNITED STATES OF MONSTERS where I used the M&M system to do a somewhat "Supernatural meets World of Darkness meets Buffy" sort of place. Taking the sensibility of horror movies and monster hunting movies then throwing them together with superhero-esque quips as well as champions. I also took a bit of inspiration from the Marvel and DC attempts to do this kind of mix with Tomb of Dracula, the Shadowpact, Werewolf by Night, and so on.
I've done three novels in the world so far.
1. I WAS A TEENAGE WEREDEER (Bright Falls Mysteries #1)
Jane Doe is a wereder, the least threatening shifter race, living in the town of Bright Falls, Michigan. It is a town full of shapechangers but one that has a history of violence as well as secrets bubbling under the surface. A history that comes to a head when Jane finds her brother framed for the murder of the local homecoming queen (and werewolf clan princess).
2. STRAIGHT OUTTA FANGTON (Straight Outta Fangton #1)
Peter Stone is a vampire who lacks all of the usual privileges of being one of the undead. He's not rich, a sex god, or particularly powerful. He does, however, have a job at the local all night gas station on the road to New Detroit, the vampire Mecca. Too bad a girl turned in his bathroom gets him involved in a massive plot against the ruling vovoide.
3. AN AMERICAN WEREDEER IN MICHIGAN (Bright Falls Mysteries #2)
Jane managed to survive her first real test at tremendous cost, exposing the lies she'd grown up with. Unfortunately, as Bright Falls Shaman, she now has to guard her town against the horrible things which go bump in the night. Unfortunately, when hiking through the woods, she ends up finding the horrible remains of the town founders' bloody religion.
